BME has seen no shortage of videogame tattoos, and even scarifcation inspired by videogames, but videogame piercings? Those are much more rare. When it comes to video games, even though he’s getting a little old and dated, you don’t get much more iconic than Pac-Man. The ol’ Pac-Man Maze Ass tattoo is one of the most forwarded and reposted tattoo images out there — we’ve seen people here tattooed head to foot with the yellow fellow, and even couples have gotten in on the fun together. There have even been Pac-man subdermal implants!

It’s also nice and simple, fairly subtle and discrete, but enormous fun for those sharp-eyed enough to catch it. This happy customer (actually, Alex, an employee at the shop) was poked by head piercer Mel at Body Piercing by Tracy (bodypiercingbytracy.com) in Oceanside, California.
